Senior Snow Day

Why is there a second Senior Skip Day?

Monday March 4 is the senior snow day in Haslett. The senior class has scheduled to skip school this day and treat it as a Snow Day, much like they do with senior skip day. While senior skip day has been around as a tradition for many years, the senior snow day is newer and has been around for a year or so now. Many people for senior skip day usually do something along the lines of going to Cedar Point, or going out of state somewhere or doing something big to celebrate. However, senior snow day doesn’t have nearly as much hype around it. Many seniors have said that they don’t plan on doing much for senior snow day and they plan on either staying in or just hanging out with friends. The new snow day was started due to an absence of snow days one year, which the seniors were not happy about. Many seniors skipped on the snow day, but some stayed.

“I wanted to make sure I didn’t miss out on anything in my classes, especially the AP ones,” senior Liam Charney said. “But nobody was there and we didn’t do anything, so I probably should’ve just stayed home.” This was a more uncommon reason, but other seniors came because their parents told them or they just wanted to, like senior Richie Whaley, or they had an obligation in school and didn’t want to get a bad grade, like senior Sydney Boersma.

The faculty is treating it like senior Skip Day, meaning if you weren’t there, it is either an excused or unexcused absence.
